UAE's Northern Emirates to e-archive driver's data
The UAE’s Northern Emirates have implemented an electronic archiving system for their driver’s licence data, it was announced yesterday.
“The Vehicles and Drivers Licensing Department’s use of the electronic archiving system in Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Sharjah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain enables citizens, residents and institutions to complete transactions with a quick turnaround time," said Colonel Suhail Al Khaili, head of the Electronic Archiving Committee at Abu Dhabi Police.
“The system saves time and effort for the public as well as the employees; it eliminates the need for paper documents in transactions and contributes to the improvement and development of services.”
In a released statement the Abu Dhabi Police revealed that the electronic archiving service was introduced to reflect the Ministry of Interior’s vision to curtail the use of paper documents to complete the public’s transactions in those departments.
Colonel Al Khaili added that the data electronic archiving system provides users with easy access to reference files, and alleviates storage requirements as paper files occupy large areas in designated places; expenses are also reduced. He confirmed the data’s accuracy and validity in the system; the e-archiving system is considered to be one of the most important tools transforming data into useful information to provide special services to the public.
